Who: Designer Claire Pettibone brought together quite a few stylish ladies and gentlemen to celebrate 20 years of creating feminine, elegant and delicate dresses and lingerie for her namesake brand.
What: Longevity in the fashion industry is not an easy feat. Claire Pettibone has not only mastered the formula for gorgeous style, she's developed a lot of success and staying power along the way. The designer started her eponymous line with husband of 20 years Guy Tolemy and both the line and their love are still going strong. With red carpet regulars like Carrie Underwood, Cameron Diaz, Courtney Cox and Leona Lewis already sporting her designs, we can't wait to see what the next 20 years bring for Claire and her brand.
When: Wednesday, June 11th 2014.
Where: "The Castle" (historically called the Heinsbergen Building) on Beverly Blvd., in Los Angeles.
Notable: From the dresses, to the castle, the night was truly a magical one. Floating through the retrospective, I had to know the inspiration behind Claire's designs. "Nature" she delicately mentioned as I congratulated her on all her success.
